I'm using vpnc on fedora10. vpnc is an open source
cisco-(mostly)compatible vpn client. A couple of nice things about it:
(1) it runs in user space, not as a kernel module, and (2) it does not
completely disconnect you from your local network as the real cisco vpn
client does.

There's also some degree of Nortel and NetScreen compatibility in there,
though I've never tried using it with one of those.

F10, in fact, includes vpnc, so all you gotta do is use it.

If you're using network manager, just left-click the NM applet's icon
in the upper panel, click "VPN Connections" then set up the parameters
for the vpn to which you wish to connect.

If you're looking for some other (non-cisco) vpn, I'm afraid I can't
help you. sorry.
